LCA 2011 (lca) is a conference about Open Source Software, including Linux. It brings together the world's community of Linux and open source enthusiasts who make considerable contributions to open source software. It is not limited to just Linux users - the community is much larger than this

This is the second time lca has been held in Brisbane, with the first conference being hosted in Brisbane in 2002. 2011 will be a significant year for the open source community with many open source applications now considered mature and many more in development. Of greater significance to the many Linux users out there, 2011 will also mark the 20th anniversary of the Linux kernel originally written by Linus Torvalds in 1991.

But why is this significant to me ? Well, because Haiku will be there. Phil Greenway (Sikosis) will be presenting on Friday 28th January, 2011 at 11:30AM (just before lunch; a good spot I'm told).
